Freddy Mieryteran faces several charges for his alleged involvement in the fatal DUI car crash that caused the death of Annie Becerra of Southwest Miami-Dade.
According to authorities, the Florida shopping mall explosion occurred at around 11:30 a.m. July 6 in a vacant Pizzafire restaurant at 1041 S. University Drive, in the north end of the Market on University plaza.
The restaurant, which is part of a chain with locations in New Jersey and Ohio, was reportedly closed down in December.
In January 2016, police officers searched Ovide Ned’s car during a traffic stop in Houston, Texas. After they found a bottle of opioid painkillers, police charged Ned, then aged 40, with drug possession. Ned had $955 on his person at the time. Officers seized this money as well.
Once Ned was able to prove he had a valid prescription for the medication, the criminal charges against him were dropped. The money, however, was never returned.
Angela Beavers, the chief civil asset forfeiture prosecutor at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, said that despite the prescription, Ned was “obviously selling the pills.” She explained that drug dealers would often obtain prescriptions for the meds they were selling from pain clinics.
In January, Bob Coleman, age 69, a county commissioner for Glynn County, Georgia, was arrested together with his wife Sherry, age 59, after a yearlong investigation into their business practices.

He was elected to the Glynn County Commission three times, and the couple has lived in the area for their whole lives.
